Hello,  Our technician was in the building pulling cat5 and after he left 
this am, my librarian came to me to inform me that the clients were running 
at 1/2 speed.

I just thought to run ifconfig and I see carrier:14197 and 
overruns:12141....   Great.  I know this isn't good.

Does anyone know what this means?  Thanks,  Jim

Here is my complete ifconfig:
